Don't disagree but Travis injury has left a big hole in midfield. We have Bell and Williams. The same LB's we've had for 3 seasons. 

Forgot about Williams tbh but he is not any better either. We have Buckley, Dack when back, Davenport, Bennett, Evans when back to cover Travis.

None of those are anywhere near Travis level.

I'm just suggesting where Mogga may see priority area's besides LB. We need both.

Evans, Buckley, Bennett and Davenport are  not good enough to be in a promoted squad

Not quite as I made it clear that I wouldn't buy a season ticket (with Mowbray and Waggott at the helm) even if I'd win the £62million Euro jackpot.!

However, I won £150 across two bets (Rovers to win and more than 1.5 goals in the match) so I put my money where my mouth is/was.  As a bonus, I also took £20 off a Burnley fan in the pub when our fifth went in.  So, all in all, a nice little earner today which will allow me to add some very decent reds to my wine stock.

What a healthy attitude. Just when the club needs your support more than ever.

Great result. Deserved a big win after the encouraging performances in the first two weeks. Very impressive.

You're upset for some reason? I was just having a discussion with someone else. 👍

When Waggott does something to demonstrate we really are 'in it together' then I might reciprocate.

IMO, diabolical stuff on ST's which will just alienate the fan base more.

Checked in on the Noblers forum to see what they thought of Dolan. 
 

Seem to think he wouldn’t make the bench in their side. The delusion of fans never seems to amaze.

Be happy then and don't get involved in a very cordial discussion on who we sign next that you weren't involved in and you only joined in with to have a hissy fit. Are we good now|?

Phenomenal result. I guess the question is does it really tell us much about future games?

For mid table and promotion games probably not. Wycombe have a dearth of quality which those teams will not. But then again we have really struggled against relegation battle teams in the last few years. They've tended to be physical, play direct and we have crumbled. So if it is a very positive sign that the players and the 433 not only stood up to the aerial bombardment - it actually thrived. The midfield and front three all seem to enjoy the formation more than a 4231 or a 4411. Dolan, Rothwell, Armstrong, Johnson, Holtby were all excellent and we were relentless and ruthless.

Although we have only won 2 from 4 competitive games I think we are shaping up well for the season. If we can replicate last terms mid table and leading pack results but add significant improvements to games against the bottom six-eight team we should make the playoffs.

That said Derby and Cardiff - 2 teams with similar ambitions to us and good quality - will tell us a lot more about where stand. If we win both those I will start getting excited.

As squad players? I'm sure tons of worse players have been in promoted squads.

Evans has actually been a regular starter in a promoted team before.

My point is that bell is not good enough for a Championship squad, let alone 1st choice. LB is priority for me.

Good performance and victory to get us up and running. 3 points were essential. 5 goals and a clean sheet should get the confidence flowing. 

Some tough games coming up which will be more difficult than Wycombe but good stuff all around today. Time for a few beers in celebration.

Fantastic result and a really impressive performance. Hard to say where we're at and what we can hope for this sesson as it was only Wycombe but you can only beat what's in front of you. 

JRC a constant outlet from right back and is a great alternative to Nyambe in games like today when the emphasis is on attacking. Saying that I would bring Nyambe back in next weekend for a little bit more defensive stability. 

Really impressed with Rothwell today, fingers crossed the penny has dropped and he can kick on and continue contributing with assists (and a few goal). Not sure what else can be added about the boy Dolan, what a talent we have on our hands. 

Armstrong looking likely he will hit over 20 league goals this season, let's hope nobody comes in for him before the end of the window! 

COYB!!
